Seed potato physiological age and crop establishment
Seed potato physiological age progressively advances with time (chronological age), but is also influenced by temperature during storage. In this work, different combinations of constant temperatures (2, 8 and 20°C) were ...
Sub clover, cocksfoot and lucerne combine to improve dryland stock production
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The temporal (seasonal) pattern of dryland pasture and stock production from four cocksfoot based pastures (mixed with balansa, Caucasian, subterranean or white clover), a ryegrass/white clover pasture and a pure lucerne crop ...
Quality and quantity of chicory, lucerne and red clover production under irrigation
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2004)
The quality and quantity of production from irrigated lucerne, chicory and red clover swards were compared over six years (30 November 1996 30 June 2002) on a Wakanui silt loam at Lincoln University. Mean annual yields ...
Yield and water use of temperate pastures in summer dry environments
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
The water use efficiencies (WUE) of a range of temperate pasture species were calculated from measurements on several different dryland and irrigated pastures in Canterbury. The annual WUE ranged from 6.7 kg DM/ ha/mm for ...

An explanation of yield differences in three potato cultivars
(American Society of Agronomy, 2016-07)
Under ideal growing conditions, yield is the product of intercepted photosynthetically active radiation (PARi) and its conversion efficiency to dry matter (radiation use efficiency, RUE). For potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) ...
